If you do not measure your windows and just guess you may end up with the made-to-measure curtains either being too large or too small and you certainly don't want that! they must fit properly so take the time to get accurate measurements of your windows and then you will have no problems. Measuring for made to measure curtains:
Quality curtain tracking is made of 16 gauge extruded aluminum and is typically sold in eight foot lengths. If shorter lengths are required, tracking may be easily cut down with a hacksaw. Curves pre-bent to 45 deg. and 90 deg. are available for applications requiring the curtain to bend around a room; curves are 2 feet by 2 feet and bent at a 12 inch radius.
Suspension tubing may be used with high ceilings or if existing obstructions prevent the curtain tracking from being mounted directly to the ceiling. Suspension tubing is available in 8 foot lengths and made with 78" O.D. hollow aluminum tubing. Suspension tubing can be attached directly to solid ceilings with a ceiling flange or via ceiling clips to a drop downfalse ceiling.
Once you have determined what length of curtains you would like you need to then measure the length with a tape measure curtains are usually manufactured or made in pairs but the measurements you see on ready made curtains on the packaging is individual curtain measurements rather than both of them together generally the total width of both curtains should be 2 to 2 times the width of the curtain pole or the track. This is only a rough guide and if you have any other questions please get in touch with us here at curtains online.
